The Church of the Brethren believes that, as Christ-followers, our first priority should be sharing the love of God. We believe that because we are filled with the love of God and called to be like Him, it is our duty to love as God loves with no barrier. Like God’s love, our love should be for every person, no matter their race, gender, age, or religion.
The Brethren’s attitude towards servanthood goes far beyond that of being a good person. We believe strongly that to love as God loves means to give completely of ourselves, to be sacrificing and selfless in our relationships with each person.
Green Tree specifically lives out this conviction in many ways. We strive to serve our community with community events such as free breakfasts and free car washes, as well as a Blessings Box which offers food and paper products to any who may be in need. We also host events for charitable organizations, like blood drives and fundraisers for charities. Green Tree also organizes volunteer opportunities with organizations such as Brethren Disaster Ministries, Mennonite Central Committee, and Habitat for Humanity.
Our desire is to show God’s love to our community in every way we can by meeting as many needs as possible.
